As Variety reported earlier today, it seems as if Jodie Foster has chosen her next directorial endeavor: the independent drama MONEY MONSTER. 

The film follows a man named Lee Gates, “a TV personality whose insider trading tips have made him the money guru of Wall Street. When Kyle, a viewer who lost all of his family’s money on a bad tip from Lee, decides to hold Lee hostage on air, ratings soar as the entire country tunes in to this media frenzy to find out just how much a man’s life is worth.” Alan DiFiore (GRIMM) and Jim Koufe (National Treasure) penned the film's script.

Foster has previously directed such films as 2011's THE BEAVER, HOME FOR THE HOLIDAY, and LITTLE MAN TATE. She can next be seen in Neil Blomkamp's ELYSIUM, also starring Matt Damon.

Production on MONEY MONSTER is set to begin in early 2013.
